Student Auxiliary Safety Patrol
The Student Auxiliary Safety Patrol (SASP) was established at Ithaca College in 1971 for the purpose of providing auxiliary support to the College's Office of Public Safety. Its employees work as an additional level of safety for the College community, providing closer student feedback and improved relations between the Office of Public Safety and the College community.
SASP is a group of 30 to 40 student workers who patrol the campus in pairs every night from 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. whenever the College is in session. SASP members are trained to be alert to the safety needs of the Ithaca College community as they patrol the residence halls and parking lots on campus. Members are always in radio contact with dispatchers at the Office of Public Safety.
SASP also provides the following services to the College community:
- Walking escorts
- Vehicle jump starts
- Weekly checks of the blue-light phones
- Assistance with fire drills to the Office of Environmental Health and Safety
- Special event assistance
